Equipment Information

Nevada Northern 10, the “Ely,” is a particularly opulent example of a railroad private car. It was used by the president of the railroad for private luxury transportation and could also be employed as a rolling office or a way to “wine and dine” railroad customers. Its interior features extensive hand-carved wood, opulent furniture, and plush furniture while its open rear platform is typical of private cars and permitted a 180-degree view from the rear of the train.
